Mass Effect: Legendary Edition, the enhanced compilation of the original trilogy of the intergalactic series, will debut this month. Electronic Arts had already shown that the game will be improved in many aspects, especially the visual, but had not shared what its performance would be on consoles and PC. If you were waiting for this information to decide the platform on which you would play it, we have good news for you, as there are already official details.
The game’s publisher shared detailed information on the performance of Mass Effect: Legendary Edition. Naturally, it reveals that the title will run better on next-gen consoles, and will perform slightly better on Xbox Series X.
First you should know that Mass Effect: Legendary Edition will have a mode that will prioritize visual fidelity and another that will prioritize the frame rate per second (fps).
VISUAL FIDELITY ENHANCEMENT MODE
In visual quality enhancement mode, the game on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One will have a resolution of 1080p and will be able to reach 30 fps. The most powerful models (PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X, apart from Xbox Series S) will be able to run the title with the same frame rate per second, but in 4K.
On the other hand, on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, the experience will be much better, because, apart from presenting a 4K resolution, the game will run at 60 fps.
FRAMES PER SECOND ENHANCEMENT MODE
Thanks to the fps boost mode, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One will reach 60 fps without losing 1080p resolution. On PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X (as well as Xbox One S) this will be better, as the resolution will go up to 1440p.
Interestingly, in this mode, the game on Xbox Series X will run at 1440p and hit 120 fps; unlike PlayStation 5, which will stay at 60 fps.
If you are a PC gamer with a good machine, you should not worry, that the title can reach 240 fps and a compatible refresh rate of up to 240 Hz, apart from the fact that the user can adjust graphic options to their liking.
